This is one of the major reasons i stopped buying digital games from Sony or investing any money on my PSN account. I simply dont trust them to properly run a network. The inability to change the names at all is a HUGE red-flag. On top of that the 'primary console' nonsense where you can lose access to your stuff because you changed hardware too often or in the wrong way.

I lost all respect for the law when i witnessed two police officers severely beat a man trying ot get the crack rock out of his mouth. He was just walking up to the store and was a known druggie so the cops grabbed him. They had absolutely no concern for the man's safety. They were close to breaking his jaw to get it, their only thought was 'Get the drug'. They acted like trained dogs, not humans.When you see the law applied like that, its hard to keep respect for it.

I wanted to use a clip from the movie The Green Mile, as a lesson to my friend on the death penalty. Its the scene after they execute the Indian and one of the guards is gloating over his dead body and Brutal tells him to shut up, 'hes paid what he owed, hes square with the house.' The encryption on the DVD makes that impossible to share that fair use clip and express that idea.

And then i have to hack away at it to de-crapify it. I would rather start with something with less crap to wade through. Not to mention i cant change the baseband at all. What you are suggesting is a doing something completely insecure because you think its cheaper. Almost the entirety of mobile apps are complete insecure junk. Android is crap (as is iOS)

"In general when you have a free service. You should be grateful that it is free, and use it respecting all the other users. "

That in NO WAY reflects the reality of humanity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... You are preaching an unrealistic ideal. The biggest problem here is allowing MS to use the word 'unlimited'. That word simply should not be allowed in marketing material. If you cant offer something truly unlimited then you cant use the word in your marketing. I put the burden on on the professional marketers and lawyers that allowed this messaging to go through, not the consumers.

The only dick here is MS for using the word unlimited. Dont write checks your company cant cash.
